The enhancement wrestlers who lost to Enzo Amore and Big Cass on Monday’s Raw were named after Philadelphia Phillies’ prospects Mitch Walding and Carlos Tocci, according to Philly.com writer Matt Breen.
Powell’s POV: The Philly.com story notes that the real Walding and Tocci play for the Clearwater Threshers minor league team. The minor league club is based near Tampa, which hosted Monday’s Raw. The duo had some fun with the tribute in a photo posted on Walding’s Twitter page.
